Where:

From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting, Spoofing, Manipulation of data

Solution Status:

Partial Fix

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mantis, which can be exploited by malicious people to use a vulnerable system for port scanning other hosts, and conduct cross-site scripting, script insertion, and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input included in bug reports is not properly sanitised before being deleted. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in an administrative user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site when a malicious bug report is deleted.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.0.0a3. Other versions may also be affected.

2) Input passed to the "dir" parameter in "view_all_set.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.

The vulnerability has been reported in versions 0.19.0a1 through 0.19.2, and 1.0.0a1 through 1.0.0a3.

3) Unspecified input passed to the "mantis/view_all_bug_page.php" script is not properly sanitised before being returned to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.

4) Unspecified input is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

5) Some input passed to "core/database_api.php" isn't properly sanitised before being used in a database connect call. This can be exploited to establish database connections to arbitrary hosts.

This can further be exploited to conduct port scanning of arbitrary hosts by examining the error output.

Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.

The vulnerability has been reported in versions 0.19.0a1 through 0.19.2, and 1.0.0a1 through 1.0.0a3.


Solution:
Vulnerabilities #1, #2, and #5 have been fixed in versions 0.19.3 and 1.0.0rc2.
